Free Mobile Clinic Draws Thousands Of LA’s Uninsured, Underinsured
About 2,500 doctors, dentists, nurses, dental assistants and other medical professionals will provide over $30 million worth of free services over the course of the three days.
Thousands Of LA’s Uninsured, Underinsured Brave Lines For Free Health Care
Thousands waited in line overnight to get into the Los Angeles Convention Center Wednesday for the first of three days of free eye exams, dental care, minor surgeries and more. While past large free clinics have offered dental, eye and primary care, this week's effort is different because it also offers the minor surgeries and mental health screenings. In addition, about three dozen people who signed up in advance will get more complex surgeries – like hernia repair – for free at White Memorial and Glendale Adventist Hospitals. (Aguilera, 4/27)
